Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?
Is there such thing as being too old for orthodontic treatment?
What sort of braces should I get?
|Braces stereotypes are well and truly a thing of the past. Orthodontic technologies have evolved so wearing braces is no longer as aesthetically concerning or uncomfortable as it used to be. So why resign yourself to a life with crowded or misaligned teeth? Some discreet mechanisms for straightening adult teeth with braces include lingual braces and ceramic braces. |
Lingual braces are a more subtle option where orthodontic brackets are attached to the inner sides of the teeth, so they cannot be seen from the outside. Ceramic braces are also a great alternative to metal braces if you are looking for a less obvious treatment option. Ceramic braces are either tooth-coloured or clear enough to blend into your teeth, making it far more discreet.
How about clear aligner treatment?
How long will orthodontic treatment take?
|One of the first questions an adult will ask their orthodontist is how long will the treatment last? Ultimately, this will depend on the type of treatment you undertake, as well as the extent of orthodontic correction required. Orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from six months to around two years. Your orthodontist will discuss your estimated treatment duration during your assessment. |
Please remember, your teeth are such an important and worthwhile investment in life – no matter what your age. A dazzling smile can do wonders for your confidence, make your teeth easier to clean, which may also reduce your risk of nasty tooth decay and other oral health issues.
